The Colorado Sun combed through the 93-page supplemental report on child sex abuse by priests in the state’s three Catholic dioceses and pulled out the names of 25 accused priests.

From the report, we also compiled the parishes, schools and other locations they worked in Colorado during the period the abuse is alleged to have occurred, what years the abuse is alleged to have occurred, how many alleged victims they had, and notes on their actions and the church’s response.

Of the 25 priests named in the supplemental report 9 were not identified in the original investigation into the church, which was completed in October 2019.

The supplemental report, compiled by a third-party investigator, also found 46 additional victims. 

In all, investigators — who worked for 22 months reviewing church records — identified 52 priests who were credibly accused of abuse and 212 victims.

Warning: This story contains explicit descriptions of sexual assault.
